If we don't use the nickname ARow, "Scrappy" would be a fun alternative.

They can play that little charge song from the "Scooby-Doo" cartoons with his little nephew Scrappy-Doo. If you know what I'm talking about it's funny, if you don't, maybe it sounds a little strange.

Yeah, that would be cute. Plus, ARow is built like a fire hydrant, so the doggie nickname would be oddly apropos.

I think we should email Brooks about it.

Rowand was one of the bright spots last season. Hardworker and a good hitter. Glad to see ARow is getting some much-deserved recoginition.

I'm glad he's getting some credit, because he deserves it. I expect he'll be getting more recognition as the season goes on. . .

While Rowand plays a scrappy game, but it is noted that he takes bad routes :D:

"Playing at Fullerton and going to college was probably the best decision I ever made. I learned a lot about the game. That's where I switched to the outfield and that's where I learned the position after playing mostly in the infield. I just loved it. I wouldn't trade it for anything."

What position did Rowand play in the infield at Fullerton?

When he first started at Cal State Fullerton, they put him at 3rd base, but it wasn't long before he was in right field and that's where he pretty much stayed. Most of his infield positions were in high school..... shortstop, second base..... I think he even pitched.....scary!

I would like to put a WSI (and if possible) nationwide ban on all nicknames which take the first letter of the first name, and the last 2-3 letters of the last name. The only people in the United States who are allowed to have this nickname are:

AROD
J-LO

That means NO:
SPOD
AROW
FGAR

etc.

Thank you.

But A-Row has a nice ring to it. It's kinda like "Arrow". I like it.

Or should we just call him Rowdawg?

It's also very cub-like...

totally disagree. if there was ever a name meant for this, it's arow. even moreso than arod.

ARow is popular because of the fact that it sounds so much like "ARod". If it weren't for ARod then ARow would not have caught on.

I totally agree, however, that the "1-3 nickname" is so popular because people lack the creativity to come up with good, memorable nicknames.
